RwR 5/2 to 11/2

Another rollercoaster week.

SoTW: Fallen – Lucas King / Heart of a Servant  – Sari Simorangkir

Realized this is like…four days late, lol. And looking at the traffic, I’m somewhat surprised to see a few clicks on each RwR. Maybe like…10? For the latest, anyway.

Anyway, lots of work to clear. Let’s get started.

How I’ve been…

  1. Physically:
    1. Sleep has been similar to last week’s pattern: A few hills. Maybe one day lacking sleep, one day with sufficient sleep, two days with insufficient sleep, two days after catching up on the debt and the last day with adequate sleep.
    2. Exercise has been found lacking, regrettably.
  2. Mentally:
    1. Slightly/moderately worse than last week. At times, a burst of productivity in the day transformed into a long session of sloth in the evening.
    2. At other times, a late night kills productivity for the following day.
    3. It seems to be a challenge, but I think having a rhythm to doing work will help immensely.
  3. Emotionally:
    1. Up and down like last week – almost down to the same pattern, even. Eerie.
    2. I think there’s great profit to be made in developing two patterns for one’s emotions – divorcing them from one’s productivity and taking care to maintain one’s serenity at the same time. So when work calls, as it often does, one has the discipline to do it well, but one doesn’t ignore their own emotions at the same time and hence risk burnout.
    3. Rollercoasters~
  4. Socially:
    1. Aside from a short but welcome meetup with Pajamas, everything else was pretty quiet.
    2. I think it’s…difficult. Solitude is good for productivity, loneliness isn’t. And how does one differentiate between them? Maybe the absence or presence of God helps – if one is cognizant of His presence, then it’s slightly easier to see how time spent alone can be directed towards something beyond oneself.
    3. [BGR]: Nope nope nope. Not that one doesn’t seek this, but I think there is a certain peace one has made with God on this matter – come what may.
  5. Spiritually:
    1. I quite like the lyrics of ‘Heart of a Servant’ –  that’s why I chose it as the SoTW. Meaningful and exactly representing my heart’s desire at present.
    2. I find the musings of Brother Lawrence about his walk with God to be quire encouraging as well. How he was humble, regularly prayerful and somehow things are quite simple for him:
      1. “But in this he needed no superior to advise him; what he did need was a confessor from time to time who would assure him that his sins were forgiven. He was very much aware of his faults, but not discouraged by them. He confessed them to God, but did not ask God to excuse his sins. After confessing his sins, he went right on loving and adoring God, and with peace in his heart.”
    3. [What God’s taught me this week]: Pretty much this quote. Also, that tackling sloth is my next big challenge. 
  6. Character improvements:
    1. A set-back/step back from last week. To consolidate before pushing forth once more?
  7. Hobbies:
    1. A lot of time spent on the cello, but that’s about it.
  8. Random thoughts:
    1. “Hmm…”
    2. “Bleh. Started out so well, and then…”
    3. “I thought it was safe, but…”
    4. “Hmm..I see…”
    5. “…why complain, when…”
    6. “Right to the kokoro.”
    7. “…eyes on Christ, heart on God, mind at Him, feet to Cross.”
  9. Week ahead:
    1. The CNY week. Two assignments to clear with a few more coming right up soon.
  10. Prayer for upcoming week:
    1. Discipline and diligence to not slack.
    2. Joy while waiting on Christ for…something?
    3. Hope – to see the Cross, and Heaven, regardless the circumstances.
